A loan of $700 helped to buy galvanised metal sheets, wood and beams for building a passageway.


Jose Alvaro's story

José is a 39 year old man who has lived in his own house for 6 years with his life partner and their two children aged 9 and 13 years. For him the family is the most important thing and for this reason he works hard to find better opportunities for development. Four years ago José and his partner installed a small shop in their home and this has been their main source of income.

José wants to improve the facilities in his shop. As can be seen in the photo there is no passageway and this inconveniences customers when it is sunny or raining. He is asking for this loan from FUSAI to buy galvanised metal sheets, wood and beams to build the passageway which he really needs.
